About the Producer

Bodegas Lozano

Bodegas Lozano was established in 1853 when wine was first produced from their vineyards. Four generations later, the company, which was founded in 1920 when the first winery was built, is the largest privately owned, family run Bodega in Spain and the 5th largest overall.

Situated in the heart of La Mancha at Villarrobledo, Bodegas Lozano own almost 1000ha on two estates within 5 miles of the winery. La Carrasca and Los Salvadores are planted with 11 different varietals. Collaborating with more than 1000 local growers to source and vinify additional requirements the Bodega uses technology that is both modern and managed to the very highest standards.

The winery works closely with the local community and has worked with generations of the same family growers who surround the estate.

“Our lands represent the work and lives of our people and our effort will also be our best legacy.”
